Power food, super smoothies, sandwiches, wraps and extremely good coffee.

My thoughts about Munich
Munich has got a great mixture of big city life and awesome nature in and around the city. I love the huge range of cultural activities it offers. And I love the vibe in Munich, especially during the summer months when everybody chills at the riverside of the Isar, which goes through the city (a famous spot along the Isar is the Flaucher), grabs some beers with friends, and strangers who become friends. It’s just about having a good time.
Watching the ‘Eisbach Surfers’ in the artificial wave in the English Garden.
Take a vacation into My life
I grew up in the Austrian Alps, in Kaprun/Zell am See. I moved to Innsbruck to study Economics & Management when I was 18 and started a career as an action sports photographer. I travelled with professional freeskiers and snowboarders for a few years, accompanying them to insane winter sport destinations and competitions around the world.
At some point, I got more and more interested in portrait and fashion photography. I decided to go for it and moved to Munich to work for a big fashion magazine. For several years now I’ve been furthering my career and finding my path – I now work as a beauty and fashion photographer all over Europe.
Since I’m not really a morning person, and, surprisingly,
don’t drink coffee – the best moment of the day is coming home after a really exhausting day or trip and just chilling on the couch, reflecting on what I created that day.
Everything. I really get inspired by almost everything. I walk through the day, and take in dozens of impressions that inspire me to create something, or to simply love life. I am a very life-affirming person, and I get crazy enthusiastic about random things I see. It only takes a walk on a sunny day through the forest, or I see a postcard with a nice typography quote on it in a random store. A little cheesy, I know.
And of course I get inspired by music, and people – their minds, their visions and stories.
All of them would probably say: Linda is the creative and stylish one. And that I am very loyal and the most patient person ever.
Travelling, creating, inspiring, seeking, always challenging.
I do read a lot. Or actually, to be honest, I am the person who looks at the pictures first. I especially love: Sleek Magazine, i-D, Numero, Blond magazine, Interview Magazine, Vogue Australia, Vogue France and AnOther magazine.
The book I’m currently reading is A Movable Feast by Ernest Hemingway.
I quite like films where you can’t guess the ending and you, as the audience, get totally mislead, like in Inception and Shutter Island.
Currently binge watching: The Killing, Prison Break and Homeland.
Amalfi Coast of Italy, Lisbon, London, Stockholm, Iceland, and anywhere you can surf.
Just go for it!
For two years now, I’ve been getting a tiny random tattoo in every new country I visit. At some point I may have to rethink this practice... 🙂
therapy, and the best thing to find yourself. There’s nothing better than to explore and challenge yourself in the most diverse places around the world and get to know new people, new cultures, new visions.
fun! And it should be. If it’s not, make it worthwhile!
